What a day! It feels a bit more like summer than November out there. Not only is it nice and mild but there's even a bit of humidity in the air as well. Dew points are in the lower 60s, which is very unusual for this time of year. Temperatures are once again over 70, the third time so far this month! The record high for today, November 6, is 72 set in 1959. We have a great shot of tying or break the record. A cold front will approach this evening with a brief shower or downpour but not everyone will get wet and this evening will stay mild.
It will be nice and comfortable for tonight's football games. There may be a brief shower but most of the time it will remain dry. Behind the front the cooler air will drain in slowly so even by morning temperatures will still be near 50. However, don't expect temperatures to go up much tomorrow. Skies will stay mainly cloudy as the front stalls to our south, and it will be chilly with a gusty breezy and steady temperatures.
A weak disturbance could bring a shower or snow shower Saturday night into Sunday morning before skies become mostly sunny. It will remain cool and breezy on Sunday with temperatures near 50.
It looks as though temperatures bounce back for next week with more dry conditions. The next chance of rain will arrive later in the week, along about Thursday.
